Getting to know your settings


Want to change the ringtone, set up a Wi-Fi connection or make the screen brighter? Do this and more in Settings. Slide the Notifications panel open, and then tap settings you can change: . Here are some of the basic

Tap the On/Off switch next to an item such as Wi-Fi to turn it on or off. Tap the item itself to configure its settings.

Tap Display, gestures & buttons (or Display & buttons) to change the screen brightness or set how long the screen is idle before going to sleep.

Getting the battery to last longer


How long the battery can last before it needs recharging depends on how you use HTC Desire X. HTC Desire X power management helps to increase battery life. In times when you need to extend the battery life more, try out some of these tips:

Check your battery usage


Monitoring your battery usage helps you identify what's using the most power so you can choose what to do about it. For details, see Checking battery usage on page 164.

Manage your connections


Turn off wireless connections you're not using. To turn on or off connections such as mobile network, Wi-Fi, or Bluetooth, go to Settings and tap their On/Off switches. Switch to 2G when you don't need a data connection. More power is used when you're in low coverage areas. Temporarily turning off your data connection and switching to GSM network mode uses less battery power. To switch to GSM mode, go to Settings and tap Mobile network > Network mode > GSM only. Turn GPS on only when a precise location is needed. To prevent some apps from using GPS in the background, keep the GPS satellites setting off. Turn it on only when you need your precise location while using navigation or location-based apps. Go to Settings and tap Location to turn this setting on or off.

31

Your first week with your new phone

Manage your display


Lowering the brightness, letting the display sleep when not in use, and keeping it simple helps save battery power. Use automatic brightness (the default), or manually lower the brightness. Set the screen timeout to a shorter time. Set the web browser to auto dim the screen while webpages load. Open the Internet app, and then tap > Settings > Accessibility > Dim screen during page loading. For more details, see Changing display settings on page 161 and Personalizing on page 39.

Limit background data and sync


Background data and sync can use a lot of battery power if you have many apps syncing data in the background. Its recommended not to let apps sync data too often. Determine which apps can be set with longer sync times, or sync manually. In Settings, tap Accounts & sync and check what types of data are being synced in your online accounts. When the battery is starting to run low, temporarily disable syncing some data. If you have many email accounts, consider prolonging the sync time of some accounts. In the Mail app, select an account, tap > Settings > Sync, Send & Receive, and then adjust the settings under Sync schedule. When youre not traveling from one place to another, sync weather updates of only your current location, rather than in all of your named cities. Open the Weather app, and then tap > Edit to remove unneeded cities. Choose widgets wisely. Some widgets constantly sync data. Consider removing the ones that are not important from your Home screen. In Play Store, tap > Settings, and then clear Auto-add widgets to avoid automatically adding Home screen widgets whenever you've installed new apps. Also clear Auto-update apps if you're fine with updating apps from Play Store manually.

Other tips
To squeeze in a little bit more battery power, try these tips: Tone down the ringtone and media volume. Minimize the use of vibration or sound feedback. In Settings, tap Sound and choose which ones you don't need and can disable. Check your apps settings as you may find more options to optimize the battery.
